The primary concern, my esteemed colleagues, is stability. It was instability, the constant infighting between left and right, Democrat and Republican that caused our national crisis. It is thus that I propose a government that will endure and remain consistent in the face of adversity, for chaos is more dangerous than any enemy or human folly. It is for this reason that I propose an executive council be created, consisting of myself, Mr. Knave, Mr. NRDL, Mr.McWanderer, and Mr. Doomblade. I am sure that the rest of you have other concerns, but we are unattached to any organization or company, and thus are best suited to the task of overseeing this legislature and ensuring continuity in government. Our powers, I assure you, are quite limited. In determining law, we are but one among equals, and it is with this body of twenty that I propose power truly rest. We are all wise individuals, clear sighted and capable of seeing past the madness of the crowds. It shall be our task to guide this nation to achieve, and surpass its former glory.
It would not do, of course, to burden ourselves with too much responsibility. It is thus that I propose delegating all the mundane functions of criminal law to the states and local municipalities. In addition to easing the burden on us that we may focus on more abstract and important issues, it will serve to preserve confidence in the rule of law, for when a judge is your neighbor, and not some faceless bureaucrat, he has far more reason to be pure and incorruptible.
As you will see, I have placed extensive controls on the power of the military. This is essential, for in terms of raw strength, it is the single most powerful entity in the world. We must control it with iron wills and strict discipline, lest it grow unruly and attempt a coup. This, as I am sure you would all agree, be disastrous for our nation.
I have provided the citizenry with basic rights, sufficient to ensure that they do not feel oppressed or scared of us. It is essential that they accept our rule, for keeping the country unified and strong is our greatest priority, and keeping the people happy is the surest path to do so.
In summary, my proposal is our best bet to keep our nation together, to prevent bitter political infighting and the like, and to ensure that our country has the leading role in the future of the world.
